Karlie Kloss x Warby Parker sunglasses are coming
Karlie Kloss is trying her hand at design once again. The Victoria's Secret Angel, who collaborated on a collection of longer-length jeans with Frame Denim last spring, has now set her sights a little higher -- on a range of sunglasses, that is, with affordable eyewear brand Warby Parker.
According to Vogue (the project is featured in the May issue), the collab came about after Kloss met WP's co-founders, Neil Blumenthal and Dave Gilboa, at a charity basketball tournament they were hosting. Blumenthal says the fit was natural: "[It was] just one of those things where everyone hits it off."
The capsule collection includes three metal frames, each with ombre lenses and a 1970s aesthetic. And, as with any good celeb-type partnership, there's a charity element: Sales of the $145 glasses will benefit Edible Schoolyard NYC, a nonprofit that encourages healthier eating in low-income public school kids.
For us plebs, Karlie Kloss x Warby Parker sunglasses don't launch until June 10 -- but Kloss has already been spotted sporting the pair seen above out around New York with her high-heeled oxford-loving mini-me, Taylor Swift. Seems like someone read the rulebook on endorsement deals...
